Student reports on-campus sexual assault

A student has reported a sexual assault in the Norse Hall, but the victim has declined prosecution, according to the University Police’s Web site. This is the third sexual assault reported in the 2007-08 academic year.

According to the UP Web site, at 9:22 p.m. a female student reported that a male subject sexually assaulted her in his Norse Hall dorm room. The police interviewed both the victim and the suspect. But the victim declined to prosecute.
